The Importance of Early Neuropsychological Testing
Early identification of learning disabilities is crucial in a child’s life. It can lead to improved outcomes in education and social environments. At Dr. Shifrin’s clinic, neuropsychological evaluations help children access the therapy, medication, and behavioral management strategies they need to make optimal progress. The assessment can also provide parents and educators with insight into the child’s intellectual, behavioral, and emotional functioning.
Furthermore, a neuropsychological diagnosis is especially valuable for educators to implement necessary interventions to manage the behavior of children with learning disabilities. Dr. Shifrin is qualified to perform a range of testing regimens, including Asperger’s neuropsychological assessment and autism evaluation.
